Apricots are small, round or oval-shaped fruits that belong to the Prunus genus, closely related to peaches, plums, and cherries. These fruits are renowned for their vibrant orange-yellow skin and juicy, slightly tart flesh, which has a sweet and subtly nutty flavor.

What are they good for?

Apricots are enjoyed fresh as a snack, used in a variety of culinary applications like jams, pies, and tarts, and are also dried to create apricot “raisins,” which are popular for snacking and baking.
